How to choose a colour for your front door

Looking for an inexpensive way to boost your curb appeal?

Consider painting your front door.

Choosing the colour for your front door is a personal choice, as colour evokes very specific emotions within us all. We can feel positive and upbeat or anxious and depressed based on the colour we see every time we enter our home.
